Landon Donovan Discusses His Final Games As A Member Of The LA Galaxy With Kevin & Bean

Landon Donovan called in to The Kevin & Bean Show earlier this morning (9/2) to discuss his final days as a member of the LA Galaxy and the MLS.

“What happens as an athlete is you get used to going on the road and people making fun of you, calling you names, saying different thing and being so negative, but what’s happened now is when I go on the road there’s this shift where people have been really sweet, really appreciative… it’s almost weird for me because you go into a stadium and you’re expecting one thing and you get these nice gestures, nice comments, and teams treat you respectfully. It’s actually been really nice and I think it says a lot about our fans and the organizations that they’re being respectful. It’s been nice.”

“I’ve thought about this in different ways for a long time. I’ve spoken to my family and those closest to me and I just realized that it’s time. It doesn’t mean there won’t be days where I wake up and go ‘Dang I want to get back out there’ but the overwhelming sentiment in my heart and my soul tells me that this is the time to stop.”
